We all know that it is possible to run a VNC server in an xsession to remotely view/control this session. What I like to know is the following: Is it possible to display the xsession that was started with VNC (via xinetd) on a real hardware screen?
The background is: I have a HTPC that is attached to the network via GLan and to a beamer via DVI as well as to sound. What I would like to do is: Login on the server from my desktop, start a movie on the server and watch it on the beamer.
Maybe it is just enough to start the vnc server while booting but I don't know if this has some issues. Also I would like to start this vnc server only on demand (so via xinetd).
So did anyone of you try this? I would appriciate any advice (even how to do it without VNC, but still over the net).
